A date for all types of budget in KL
The perfect date can be a simple affair … or you can choose to go all out and break the bank. Either way, it’s the person you’re with who makes it all worth it. That being said, it can’t hurt to find a place with great food and drinks. We’ve rounded up a few must-try date spots based on different budgets … for two, of course.
Coffee in Love Café
How could we not add this quaint little café to our list of romantic places to head to this Valentine’s? Not only is love in their name, the setting is really cosy, allowing for couples to canoodle over a cuppa and maybe a slice of cake. This little spot nestled amid the lush greens of a plant nursery is quite hidden away, so you’ll be able to spend uninterrupted quality time with your other half. Their Colombian coffee beans are imported directly from roasters and each cup is freshly-ground, ensuring great coffee every time. Additionally, pick from a range of homemade cakes, baked in small batches for quality and freshness.

VIEW at G Tower
With stunning views of the city, this impressive location has fast become a spot to indulge in a drink or two. Ask for a seat at the couch area, which has the best vantage point and cosy up with your partner as you sip on their unique concoctions. With drinks like the Strawberry Basil Smash, Pineapple Cardamom Martini and Apple Rosemary Martini, you’re in for a real treat. Take in the sparkling city lights and let the night stretch on. If you have no dinner plans, order up a few snacks to nibble on throughout the night. With a view like this, you won’t be in any hurry to leave.
Rooftop, G Tower, 199, Jalan Tun Razak (Tel: 03-2168 1881)
A fuss free, casual but romantic night can be enjoyed here. This lovely bungalow on a hilltop has a great ambience, with sweeping views of the city. Choose to dine al fresco, where you can enjoy the fresh air and dim flickering lights; love can’t help but blossom in an environment like this. The menu offers a variety of food, from sushi and yakitori to burgers. Their cocktail menu is one of the most innovative around, with drinks such as the Malacca Loda, an award-winning cocktail made with a blend of local and Caribbean flavours such as Angostura 1919 rum, kaya and fresh coconut water. One sip of this, and you’ll feel as though you’ve been whisked away from the city to a gorgeous resort.
23 Lorong Dungun, Damansara Heights (Tel: 016-2291 505)
For an artsy evening of delectable dining, whisk your sweetie away to this beautifully restored colonial building in the heart of Chinatown. On the bottom floor you’ll find a trendy art gallery showcasing local talent. Sip on a cocktail as you lounge in the gallery café soaking in the art, then climb up the stairs to the swanky steak restaurant. Opt for the 750g rib steak that is large enough for two. The meat is melt-in-the-mouth perfection, with a gorgeous sear. For dessert you’ll want the sinful chocolate fondant with The Last Polka’s salted Gula Melaka ice cream. The play on chocolate and salt will have you both smiling, which we are sure will prolong the night.
